In this panel presentation the panelists will discuss the relationship between the U.S. Federal Government and the language profession. The first presenter will give an overview of the relationship, speaking about government funding for language learning and introducing the topics he and the other presenters will speak on more fully. The second presenter will then speak on languages’ lobbying agent in Washington, the Joint National Committee on Languages, its work, its history, its documents, and how it is funded. After her presentation the first presenter will talk about government grants for languages from the U.S. Department of Education and the Department of Defense and his association with them as a recipient of grants and a reviewer of grant proposals. He will present in more detail the Department of Defense’s “Go” grants, the Department of Education’s Fulbright Hays grants, the Foreign Languages and International Studies grants, and the National Language Resource Center grants and talk about what grant reviewers are looking for in grants. The third panelist will then present about her successful grant proposal to become a new NLRC. She will talk about the process of writing a grant proposal at this level and all of the difficulties she encountered in the process as well as give tips for writing a grant proposal.
